Energy Saving Products

There are plenty of products on the market these days that help conserve power. One option is to buy energy efficient light bulbs that not only save power, but last longer and cost less to run. You can also use energy efficient power surge protectors. Instead of buying a new energy efficient washer and dryer you can plug the dryer you already have into the surge protectors to cut down on the amount of energy it uses.

Install Energy Efficient Doors and Windows

If you are truly looking to upgrade your home and make it as energy efficient as possible, we suggest installing new energy efficient doors and windows.

Older windows can leak cool or warm air to the outside, which could cost you hundreds of dollars on your electric bills. Our custom vinyl replacement windows are ENERGY STAR® qualified and designed to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Potomac View Energy also sells and installs energy efficient front entry doors that have more insulating, which help to keep out drafts. Older doors typically lack sufficient sealing, or have sealing that has worn away, leaving open spaces for cold air to come in and warm air to leak out. Installing a new insulated door can save you up to 15 percent on your heating and cooling bills.
